Upon completion of the Kula Collective 300 hour advanced teacher training, I have become inspired for self study to now become a part of my daily life. In the niyamas, swadhyaya recommends traditional scripts to improve self study with self reflections as our goal. According to our Kula living and healing manual, we can use these ancient teachings to reflect on our own personal growth by practicing learning in all aspects of our life. "By devoting ourselves to constant study and self-study, we remain humble students and continue our growth and development as yogis". I will incorporate swadhyaya into my routine/rituals so that I can live out my manifestation: I am devoted to living and sharing yoga. As I continue to learn and grow in my own path, both personally and professionally, I am inspired to enthusiastically share more information and applied teaching, as well as healing techniques, with others.
My mission is to create a safe space for healing. My message is to inspire exploration, learning and growth. By living in this way, with a strong desire and intention for devoting time to learn and grow more, I hope to heal any parts of myself that need healing and growth. This desire to practice the drive has been inspired by fellow students and teachers. I have a student who first came to my yoga class two years ago out of curiosity. She said she saw photos of people doing yoga and she wanted to try it. Since then she has found Ashtanga to be her passion. She is extremely dedicated to her practice and soon will complete her first yoga teacher training. When I see her informational and enthusiastic posts and speak with her I am always inspired, energized and impressed at how much drive and dedication she has for her personal growth. Which has now become professional as she transforms from student to teacher. Leaving her real estate career behind to study and become a yoga teacher. Through the process of the 300 hour training the facilitators (Ananda, Randi, Saraswati, and Jaya) amplified this desire with their authentic essence and teaching styles. I found them to be very wise in an extremely loving way which was such a joy to experience. This training inspired me to dedicate disciplined time everyday to continue to study and progress on my path.
